Father’s Day is June 17 so there’s still plenty of time to pick out the perfect present for the deserving dads in your life. Whether you’re shopping for your own father or for the man your children call “dad,” you’re bound to find something that suits his signature style at Disney Springs. Not sure where to start? Below, in no particular order, are a few suggestions:
Socks from Stance: You might be thinking, “Socks? Really?” Yes. Really! With designs featuring teams from the NFL, MLB, NBA and top Collegiate teams, plus options that showcase characters ranging from classic Disney to Star Wars, there’s sure to be a pair he’ll love. Bonus: he’ll think of you every time the playful pattern peeks out from below his pants leg.
Athlete Recovery Sleepwear from Under Armour: For fitness fanatic dads who love the latest in technology, this collection from Under Armour may be just the thing they never knew they wanted. Using a Far Infrared print inside each piece, the assortment is designed to help dad recover, even when he’s resting.
Dad-Approved Bling: If watches are his thing, then a visit to Luxury of Time by Diamonds International is in order; here, you’ll discover brands including Tag Heuer, Breitling, Bulgari, Movado, Citizen, Hublot and many more. (Feel free to let him try on anything in the store, but be warned, once it hits his wrist, he’ll never want to take it off!) If jewelry is more his style, check out UNOde50’s genderless jewelry pieces, or, invest in a piece from the new MAN Collection from Alex and Ani.
Beard and Skin Care Supplies: Fathers with facial hair will appreciate grooming essentials for the modern man available at The Art of Shaving where you’ll find razors, brushes, gift sets and more. At Kiehl’s Since 1851, ask one of their super-helpful experts for personalized recommendations – from cleansers to anti-aging solutions and everything in between, they’ll have advice on the best gifts. (Insta-worthy photo tip: pose with the Harley-Davidson motorcycle in the back of the store and earn bonus cool points from dad!)
A Use-It-Anywhere Gift Card: Did you know that Disney Gift cards can be used at any of the 150+ locations at Disney Springs? A “Meet Me at the People Mover” t-shirt from DisneyStyle, an over-the-top meal at STK Orlando, tickets to “The Incredibles 2” at AMC Disney Springs 24 Dine-In Theatres, Camp Shirts from Tommy Bahama, reservations to experience The VOID: Secrets of the Empire, a Disney attraction-inspired tie from Twenty-Eight & Main…the list is practically endless. Pick up a card and load it with funds at any Disney retailer or at the Disney Springs Welcome Center – I’m partial to the version with the Disney Springs design on the front, but a classic Mickey card will do, too!
Father’s Day is an important date because dads deserve their due, but this year, it’s also the very last day to experience “Discover Bourbon at Disney Springs” – if you haven’t come out yet to sample our array of bourbon-based beverages and food pairings, you may want to plan a visit ASAP.
